    Ok, so I just was thinking...I'm looking at getting a 100 2.8 macro (canon) for portrait and product photography for my business (graphic design). Now first and foremost I love more fine art photography but I do in-house photography at the studio for the money. I was wondering:

    1. Is there a comparable lens made by a 3rd party manufacturer?

    2. Is it worth the price difference?

    3. Are there any canon users here who use 3rd party lenses at a comparable focal length for portraits/product shots?

    Well I have the Canon 100mm macro, and it is a great lens. It is really sharp and pretty quick. Overall, it is my favorite lens. I use it for my portraits too.

    Also, I think the Tamron 90 DI does not have inner focusing, which for nature macros is not a good thing. But for portraits, I think it would be fine.
